Minecraft has sold over 14 million copies on PC, Notch says

Minecraft Presents

Bit of feel good news for all those budding indie developers on PC: you can still make a lot of money, as Markus “Notch” Persson knows. The Minecraft maker announced recently that the PC version of the block-bashing, human-observing simulator has now sold more than 14 million copies. “Celebrating by having no idea how to play LEGO Marvel,” the developer announced.

What’s really startling about the figure is just how soon the milestone was passed. Alice reported in the middle December that Minecraft for PC and Mac – Minecraft “Prime”, as it were – had broken the 13 million barrier, which means around one million people over Christmas found the time to discover Minecraft.

The game has now sold more than 35 million copies across all platforms – so basically the same amount as Grand Theft Auto V.

I love how minecraft is still showing everyone out there that a good concept is much more important than just fancy graphics.

Lets hope the AAA companies learn a thing or two from this and other precious indie-examples.
